An experimental study on the exit location on the evacuation efficiency under high competition condition - Wu F, Wang G, Si Y, Lin P.

Crowd dynamic has attracted the interest of scientists as a number of crowd incidents happened in the last decades. A series of mice evacuation experiments were conducted in a test container with the size of 1.5 m long and 0.3 m wide. A 2 cm-wide exit is p...

This study aimed to determine the feasibility of an occupational therapy intervention to address sedentary behavior and pain among older adults residing in assisted living facilities. A single group pretest and posttest design was implemented using the Sedentary Behavior Questionnaire, actigraphy technology, and daily activity logs to measure sedentary behavior. The Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire was used to assess pain. Occupational therapy intervention focused on individualized goals related to participation in meaningful physical activities, which were established in collaboration with the participant and were tra...

This report presents data on cVDPV outbreaks detected during January 2018-June 2019 (as of September 30, 2019). Compared with January 2017-June 2018 (3), the number of reported cVDPV outbreaks more than tripled, from nine to 29; 25 (86%) of the outbreaks were caused by cVDPV2. The increase in the number of outbreaks in 2019 resulted from VDPV2 both inside and outside of mOPV2 response areas. GPEI is planning future use of a novel type 2 OPV, stabilized to decrease the likelihood of reversion to neurovirulence. However, all countries must maintain high population immunity to decrease the risk for cVDPV emergence. Cessation ...

Glucocorticoids are widely used in the treatment of numerous inflammatory conditions, including sepsis. Unfortunately, patient response to glucocorticoid therapy can be inconsistent. Variations in the human glucocorticoid receptor (hGR) may contribute to the differential patient response. We screened for hGR variants in the buffy coats of burn patients and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) treated with lipopolysaccharide. Three novel splice variants containing cryptic exons were upregulated in the PBMCs after lipopolysaccharide exposure at 3 and 13 h with the greatest observed expression at 3 h. Luciferase ass...
